We have seen some leaks of the rumoured Nexus 4 successor before, but the latest leaked image is the clearest yet, allegedly showing the Nexus 5.
The fresh leak comes from a MacRumors forum member named Weespeed. The member claims the leaked images shows the new Nexus 5. The forum member further reveals that the rumoured Nexus 5 is smaller in size than LG’s current flagship, the G2, and it apparently also features smaller bezels.
Weespeed also suggests that the yet-to-be-announced Nexus 5 smartphone looks quite similar to the new Nexus 7 tablet. Interestingly, the member claims that the Nexus 5’s display is not as good as Samsung’s 2012 flagship device, the Galaxy S III. The alleged leaked image shows the rear panel of the Nexus 5, housing a large camera sensor at the back, which was first spotted in the Android 4.4 KitKat announcement video.
Earlier this week, an alleged Android 4.4 KitKat log file was leaked, apparently revealing specifications of the rumoured Nexus 4 successor, thought to be called the Nexus 5. The log file revealed the device running ‘Key Lime Pie’ with build number KRS74H.
The rumoured Nexus 5 is expected to come with a 5-inch display (precisely 4.97-inch) with full-HD resolution, boasting of a 442ppi pixel density. It is likely to be powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of inbuilt storage. As for the optics, the device is said to sport an 8-megapixel rear camera and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera.
It is rumoured that the next Nexus smartphone would run Android 4.4 KitKat, and that the smartphone would be the platform lead device for the new platform, with both due to be launched at the same event.
